    I have been working at The White House full-time

    Pros

    I've been working with WHM for about 5 months and honestly I was a bit skeptical when I started because I had read a few negative reviews about the company, but nevertheless I decided to give it a shot and see for myself. Needless to say that 5 months later I'm so thankful I made the decision to try it for myself. After my first month and a half I received my second promotion to Account Manager and I'm now on my way to becoming an Assistant Manager ready to promote out as a Market Manager. This business has helped me to not only develop better business skills but it has also helped me be more organized and disciplined in my personal life as well. Everything that was explained to me in the interview process has proved to be accurate. As long as I am willing to put the hard work into improving myself, the opportunity for growth is definitely in front of me.

    Cons

    If you are not willing to stretch yourself to grow, develop, and work hard then this is probably not for you. It not the easy way out!!!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push people to develop, grow, and become better versions of themselves because the better them will thank you later.
